Glaucoma: 2nd leading cause of blindness in the world

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye's optic nerve and can result in vision loss and blindness. However, with early detection and treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss.

At first, open-angle glaucoma has no symptoms. It causes no pain. Vision stays normal. Glaucoma can develop in one or both eyes. Without treatment, people with glaucoma will slowly lose their peripheral (side) vision. As glaucoma remains untreated, people may miss objects to the side and out of the corner of their eye. They seem to be looking through a tunnel. Over time, straight-ahead (central) vision may decrease until no vision remains.

There is no cure for glaucoma. Vision lost from the disease cannot be restored.

Immediate treatment for early-stage, open-angle glaucoma can delay progression of the disease. That's why early diagnosis is very important. Glaucoma treatments include medicines, laser trabeculoplasty, conventional surgery, or a combination of any of these. While these treatments may save remaining vision, they do not improve sight already lost from glaucoma.

If you are being treated for glaucoma, be sure to take your glaucoma medicine every day. See your eye care professional regularly. You also can help protect the vision of family members and friends. Encourage them to have a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once every two years. Remember that lowering eye pressure in the early stages of glaucoma slows progression of the disease and helps save vision.

I am 30 years old female. I am having constant blurry vision on my right eye since 2 weeks. Blurriness is increasing day by day. I saw an eye doctor. He tested me for glaucoma and result was negative. He did slit lamp test also and said retina and iris seems to be ok. I dont have any red eyes. No eye pain. Just right eye has blurred vision which is constant. I have a herpes viral infection on my lips for the past 5 months which is not getting cured. Could it be related to my eyes blurred vision. Need your advise. What kind of test I should go for, to check if virus is not causing blurriness.

As far as eyes are concerned you have something called as computer vision syndrome. So take frequent breaks while you are working every 20-25 mins take break to look away from screen blink more frequently' level of screen should be below the level of eyes ac should not blow directly on your face. Also get your eyes checked for any spectacle power.

You have something called Computer Vision Syndrome. To avoid this stress do the following Keep blinking. It washes your eyes in naturally therapeutic tears. Remember 20-20-20. Every 20 minutes, spend 20 seconds looking at something 20 feet away, minimum. Good lighting is important. Position the computer screen to reduce reflections from windows or overhead lights. Keep the monitor at least 20 inches from your eyes. Make sure it? S big enough and with just the right brightness and contrast.

Lasik surgery has success rates close to 99% you need to undergo pre lasik workup which will include corneal topography. If your corneal thickness is fine and topography is normal, then you can safely go for lasik. Lasik has much predictable results with the current advanced technology.

These could be signs of muscle tension headaches or stress headache. What you need is relaxation. Try some muscle relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation etc. If you find that difficult and have sleep problems too then do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist, online if you prefer.

Hello lybrate-user. There is no muscle weakness. This is all due to axial length or curvature of eye ball in most of cases. All you require is pair of glasses.

I have asked a question regarding my vision. Actually, I forgot to mention that I am wearing glass for the past 15 years. I have made a eye checkup 4 months ago. Still, I feel that I am losing the vision abruptly and feel strain in the eyes. So, my question is that can you prescribe any exercise or any natural tips apart from glass or medicines.

Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight or to get rid of glasses. Get your vision tested and wear glasses. At this age you will require additional glasses for near work and that number is physiological having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy.

Hello lybrate-user, sorry about your problem. The thing with vkc is that it has a high tendency to recur. Let me put it in this way- in the same way that it is not possible to prevent environmental exposure to dust, allergens or pollutants, similarly, it is not possible to prevent this allergy from recurring. There are a few important tips that might help in solving your problem, though. Maintaining proper eye hygiene would ensure lesser exposure to these allergic substances, dust, etc. Similarly here are a few more suggestions: don't take your eyes for granted! protect your sight with these six tips: 1. Eat for good vision 2. Quit smoking 3. Wear sunglasses to protect eyes from dust, uv light, pollution 4. Wash your eyes 3-4 times a day 5. Look away from the computer screen at regular intervals 6. Avoid rubbing your eyes with fingers/ cloth/ shirt/ dupatta, etc. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-regards.

Get your refraction done and wear spectacles. Eat green veggies. Carrots. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularly if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles. These are few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which with increases your eyesight. You cant do anything to prevent your refractory error. Looking at your age I think it will stabilize in an year or two.

Eye strain, or asthenopia, is when the eyes get tired from excessive or intense use. It can be annoying, but it tends to disappear with rest. Although it’s not often a serious condition, eye strain could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Eye strain is known to cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and headaches Eye strain may lead to other problems, such as: • Headaches • Difficulty Concentrating • Irritability • Burning Sensation • Watery Eyes • Dry Eyes • Photophobia • Eye Pain HomeTreatment for Eye Strain 1. The first thing you can do is change your environment and work habits. By doing this you can relieve the pain without spending money on treatment. If you work on the computer, try taking more eye breaks by looking down the hall or out the window, or by closing your eyes for thirty seconds. You should get your eyes checked at least once a year, especially as you grow older. Routine eye exams give you the opportunity to discuss with your Eye Specialist any issues you may be having, and they may enable you to catch any problems in their early stages. Age Frequency 0 to 6 months Minimum of once a year 6 months to 18 years Every 2 – 4 years 19 to 39 years Every 3 – 5 years 40 to 64 years Every 2 – 4 years 65 and older Every 1 – 2 years If you spend a lot of time sitting in front of a computer or reading, you may need prescription glasses solely for those activities. Prevention of Eyes From Straining If you work on a computer, taking eye breaks for five minutes every hour can lessen the strain on your eyes. Simply closing your eyes for a few moments can also do wonders. Try standing up, moving around, or taking a short walk to help regain concentration.Regular eye exercises that involve focusing on different distances can help prevent future straining. Blink often. Blinking refreshes and replenishes your eyes naturally.If you are having trouble with blinking due to the dryness of your eyes, try using Homoeopathic CINELUBE EYEDROPS ( HAPDCO) 3 times daily.

This is due to allergy (allergic rhinitis) so you need to take antihistaminics and steroid nasal spray. Avoid exposure to dust.
